Experience the Excitement of Tompkins

Upcoming Events

The Center's exhibit space allows visitors to connect Tompkins County's past, present and future. It highlights how our history both aligns with and differs from other communities in the region and how, at times, our history took a different course. History exhibits include a timeline, artifacts including maps and photographs, oral history Story Vault, and interactive displays. The Ithaca College Gallery/CAP ArtSpace hosts monthly exhibits of local artists work in a variety of mediums. Events listed below include all events hosted by the TCHC building partners, not limited to those that happen in the TCHC building. Visit individual partners websites for details on their specific events and programs.
